Well written, fascinating- learn chemistry at home
This book was written for the layman, but it's written well, for people with a brain. It amazes me that gentlemen scholars wrote these books for the general public, and that they were published. Compare this title to whatever is in the top ten bestseller list this week.
A person could educate themselves to the level of an engineer just by reading- and it's all free. Many thanks for the upload, this is a treasure and I am not even into chemistry. It is such a good book anyone will be interested in it.
